The Call List on Your HTC One

By Bill Hughes

Sure, you might have caller ID on your landline at home or work, but most landline phones don’t keep track of who you called. Cellphones, on the other hand, can keep track of all the numbers you called.

This information can be very convenient, like when you want to return a call, and you don’t have that number handy. In addition, you can easily add a number to the contact list on your phone.

Once you’ve made your first call, you will see that the phone dialing pad includes your last call.


Your phone assumes that the last call you made has the best chance of being your next call. This is bound to be the case some of the time. If not, you can simply tap the call history icon (just underneath the word Phonebook). Sliding this link to the right will bring up the screen seen here, which includes the information on your most recent calls.


Each call bears an icon telling you whether it was an

  • Outgoing call you made: An arrow points down and to the left towards the image.

  • Incoming call you received: An arrow points up and to the right.

  • Incoming call you ignored or missed: A red exclamation mark with the calling number in red.

Tapping any number in your call list automatically calls that number.
